Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, kind of like dry corn sweetness. In the taste, a light sweet to dry corn flavor with a light grain taste as well. A small bite and light bodied mouthfeel, with a dry standard lager and corn like aftertaste. Interesting corn flavors but still just a light lager, but fresh.

Appearance: light gold , huge pillowy froth and plenty of lace. Fine clarity and brightness.

Smell: Biscuity, rich malt, mild floral touches. Pale malt aromas are the strongst, with a lot of bread.

Taste: Light cracker like maltyness. Just enough herbal, spicy hops to balance. Bready malts and tea like hops. Clean, crisp lager with good hop character.

Feel: Light bodied, crisp snappy feel. Good amount of carbonation retains well through the liter.

Overall: good light beer.

A-Bright, clear golden yellow with a thick, bright white head that left nice lace.

S-Lightly sweet biscuit malt and a touch of noble hop spiciness.

T-Surprisingly more flavour than the premium lager! A nice spicy pop of hops overlays the biscuit and dry cracker malt base.

M-Again...it is a well made German lager--Medium-light bodied clean and crsip.

D-Wow--this could be my BMC go to beer....whenever that would be. But seriously a fairly tasty, clean, crisp lager with a touch of flavour at a sessionable 3.8%---Nice!

About as good of a light beer as you are going to get. Delightful aroma, good feel. However, if you are at the Hofbrauhaus it's almost a waste to order this beer!
